I recorded this piece in the early 2000’s, it was the soundtrack for a solo performance piece I created then presented in San Francisco where I played both Beauty and the Beast. One of the many meanings of this story for me is that each of us contain aspects of both beauty and beast. In the performance I moved across the stage and writhed on the floor in a frilly princess gown with long animal claws peeking out from beneath my dress, I spoke in a garbled language and howled at the moon. Here for you is a shortened version of the audio from that performance.
